Body of Georgia Girl Found in Dumpster

I remember a conversation I heard between two women several years ago as they watched a news story about a murder that occurred the day before and had the entire community stunned.  One of the women said, “I just don’t understand how someone could do that to another person.”  And the response from her friend was, “If I ever get to the point that I can understand, then I’ll be really worried.”

I think about that exchange often, particularly when I read about yet another gruesome crime committed against an innocent member of our society.  For instance, who can ever understand the vicious murder of a seven-year-old girl whose body was discovered in a dumpster this week?

Jorelys Rivera was abducted, sexually assaulted, and murdered in her apartment complex about forty miles outside of Atlanta.  Apparently, she was spending time at the complex’s playground with some other kids and her teenaged babysitter when she asked to return to her home to get something to drink.  She never made it back.  Police are asking everyone for assistance in finding who could have committed such an unthinkable act against a little girl, but admit they have no solid leads at this time.

I don’t understand this type of vicious behavior.  How can someone harm a child in the most brutal of ways and then toss her in a bin as if she was nothing more than a sack of garbage?  It’s incomprehensible.  I’m hoping that the person responsible is captured . . . and soon . . . so that perhaps we can get some answers and, more importantly, Jorelys’ family can face the monster that hurt their child and perhaps they can take a little solace in knowing this criminal will be prevented from ever being free to harm again.

    Oh it’s GOT to be someone in that complex or nearby. How frustrating to know they’re so close! I hope they string them up and tie a bad knot. Grr.

    • Yes, most likely it is someone near by that probably knows the neighbors and girl’s family. These types of stories weigh heavy on me and I hope that they find the killer soon. I’m sure that the police are working around the clock.
